I thought it’d be fun to write a post on, you know, the four or five beauty products I carry around in my purse everyday. But when I dumped out the insides of my bag, I found 18 products that I’ve been toting around! These are my unedited findings:

1. Viviscal and 2. Brightening Formula supplements: There’s just no way for me to remember to take vitamins and supplements unless I have them on me at all times.

It took me a long time to start using liquid foundation. I was always afraid of ending up with a cakey-looking face, but many of the newer and better foundation formulas give a “you, only better” finish.

Wet the sponge first and dip it in your foundation. Then, dab it on your skin for the lightest, air-brush effect. The shape also makes it ideal to get product into even the smallest corners (around the nose and eyes).

Sundays are invariably my ‘me’ days, which means I turn my apartment into a mini spa—the most economical spa that there is. The robe comes out, the faux nail bar is erected in one corner of my room, my shower becomes “the sauna,” and I always, always have a face mask handy.
